The 1Password 8 for iOS can now serve as a protected window into the user’s most important information on the Apple Watch – even when their phones don’t have an internet connection or aren’t on their person.

Though Apple Watch screens have been getting bigger year after year, it will always be a device with a small screen, as compared to our gigantic phones. AgileBits has taken care of this inconvenience by introducing the ability to view passwords in ‘Large Type’, which makes reading passwords comfortable.
